Greek Shrimp and Artichoke Salad

July 12, 2011

Yesterday was hot and today is supposed to be even hotter in NJ. The temperatures are predicted to reach 100. When it is this hot, I don’t feel like cooking a big meal. A salad and some ice cream is my perfect dinner. But to make a salad for the husband is another story. I […]

I love shrimp scampi because it tastes so good and it is a nice quick dinner. It also goes great with a glass of white wine. The thing I don’t like is how the butter goes from my lips to my hips. So I decided to lighten a classic recipe up and substitute chicken broth […]

Delicious Spaghetti and Scallops

July 6, 2008

It is a bit of a dreary day but I am enjoying my lazy Sunday morning. The kids just had some pancakes so they are happy. Hubby went to Restaurant Depot with a neighbor. He is probably buying a side of beef right now , or maybe a 40 pound bag of potatoes. Only kidding. […]

Shrimp Orzo Salad

May 8, 2008

I am the type of cook that looks in my fridge or freezer and then decides what we are having for dinner. I add a little bit of this and a little bit of that. My husband jokes that even if he likes something, he will never get the same thing again. That is because […]
